I'm back from my week in the Pyrenees (with day trips to Andorra and Spain) which was such a nice break. I got to recharge my batteries a bit before I go back to work with all my little rascals later this week.
Over the next few days I'll give you some peeks into my vacation- some of my favorite parts. I'll start with a special local touch in the village where we stayed- Montalba le Chateau.
We drove by this every morning and evening when we left the village to explore. It was so charming- a self-serve almond cart. One of the last days we were there I stopped in the morning to buy a bag... before checking if there was a casse-noix, a nutcracker. Even though it was a little messy trying to crack them open with a knife, a bottle opener, and finally the leg of a table.... it was well worth it! Delicious and fresh almonds, miam : )
